Acoustic Enhancer

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Available from £100 (UK next day), the Acoustic Enhancer is a low-voltage vibrator with an interchangeable base for use on violin, viola, cello, double bass to improve the response of new or rested instruments in a week or so.

 

Version for Acoustic Guitar or Mandolin here.

Featured in 'Accessories 2013' (The Strad October 2013) and

'Product of the Month' (The Strad April 2010).

What exactly does it do? Let's see the evidence. 

 

One vibrator and four bases cover the whole family.

Still repairing cautiously. You can post or leave instruments "remotely". Please contact me first.
 

Not near Harrogate? Why not post your violin or bow for repair? It will usually cost around £10 and you will recover that on my repair charges - much lower than in the south.
 

So your cello neck's broken? It can be mended: I know how.
You want a student instrument which is set up to play easily? Try me.


Not sure if your child will persevere? Why not hire an instrument until you're certain?


You want the best price in at auction? I placed an Italian violin which fetched £30,000.


I've repaired a cello for a professional. It came in at 10.30pm on Saturday after a gig and was in his hands again 10 hours later when he left Harrogate on the train.

A double bass on tour with an Australian orchestra was repaired in six hours .
